Quit: The Last Principle of Success
From Episode 374, Dr Stanley G Robertson
A professional football player quit during halftime. A military commander quit his troops to be with his family. People who quit are often ridiculed and shamed because we are a hyper-performance-based society where "quit" is a dirty word. There are countless situations of everyday individuals who struggle over the decision to quit because of the emotional stigma associated with the concept. But the notion that "winners never quit" is a myth. The truth is that winners quit all the time. It is the act of quitting a current goal that opens up the possibilities for a new one.

Knuckle Dragging Sales
From Episode 370, John Crowley
Crowley started on his quest to join this elusive group, he voraciously consumed sales books, podcasts and more. But when he implemented their suggested hacks, tips and tricks, his commission decreased. Why? With every new sales technique, he moved further away from the basics. The "experts" of the sales world muddies the waters and made us believe there's a magic bullet to make selling easy. Magic bullets don't exist in sales. Through trial and error and a lot of knuckle dragging, John figured out what worked and what didn't. None of it was "easy" or "magic," but it was simple. You persist and win... or you quit and fail. You hunt and gather... or you starve and die. Even a caveman could understand that. Welcome to the De-Evolution Revolution of Sales.

The Transparency Sale

Buyers today have knowledge at their fingertips and most of their information gathering will routinely happen before you even walk through the door or get them on the phone. Armed with information, their guard is up – and they are skeptical. Today, anyone buying anything relies on reviews and feedback shared by strangers and often trust those anonymously posted experiences more than the claims made by the providers of the products or services themselves. They expect to see the full picture and find out all of the pros and cons before making any purchase. And the larger the purchase, the greater the demand for transparency.
